Ocean City, NJ "Activities with Children"
The Cape May County Park and Zoo at 4 Moore Road in Cape May Court House is a great destination if you're visiting the Jersey Shore with children - of all ages! With over 200 acres, there is plenty of space for playgrounds, sports fields, covered picnic shelters, hiking-biking paths, and the zoo!
Guests of the Scarborough Inn Bed & Breakfast find the park/zoo an easy and convenient drive from the inn and the perfect spot for a day-trip. The Zoo is open 364 days a year and is home to 250 species of mammals, birds, amphibians, and reptiles - over 550 animals! Much of the area is forested or is a beautiful park-like setting. There is no admission charge, but donations are greatly appreciated.
The park is well-maintained, spacious, and with a great variety of activities and exhibits - lots of fun! There's a snack bar and gift shop, too.
Innsider Tip: Include a visit to the Cape May County Park & Zoo as a change from the beach or on a cloudy day.
